A wire-free Water Street?
Will 2017 be the year Water Street’s electrical and communications wires be finally all run underground?
Kudos to the visionary planners and decision makers who have recently made the significant financial and infrastructure investments to improve the aesthetics of the majority of Water Street in downtown Charlottetown.
Our “Birthplace of Confederation” historic area will, without a doubt, now attract greater appreciation.
Another remarkable achievement on Water Street has almost been achieved. From Queen Street going east to past the Boardwalk Professional Centre there are almost no overhead wires. Only a few Maritime Electric poles remain at and near the corner of Water and Prince Streets with unsightly wires slung across the roadway.
Three old poles and their dreadful array of wires are all that remain towards making Water Street overhead-wire free. This should be a significant milestone towards the ongoing efforts to “Make Our Hometown Beautiful.” Ray Brow, former owner, 140, 220 Water Street, Charlottetown
